Element Contextual Framing

Abstraction Layers

Consistent with the "system" model, EATS maintains a 3 layer basic contextual model:

  • Center focus area layer defines the "system under study"
  • Contextual layer defines the environment for the system
  • Sub-component layer defines constituent parts of concern to the study

Each of these three layers, can be sub-divided to deal with content on a multi-layer, logical layered basis, as needed for the specifics of the element and the model.

An alternative visualization is to think in terms of nested containers.
